    Pros

    This seems like a really cool company. The job that I had was to research answers for questions and it was super fun - I really like research. There are also a decent number of questions and they are reasonably priced actually - I think it would be possible to turn it into a decent part time job, once you got good at it.

    Cons

    There was a little training website thing with documents. Which I read almost completely before even starting. I really wanted to do well. The first couple questions went well. They were both reviewer approved, and I believe client approved - I even got a positive client rating for one. When I ran into a question that I answered wrong, the reviewers rejected it (there were 2, but they were kind of the same and I did them at the same time). So the answers were rejected by a reviewer. The email that I got was borderline sarcastic and immediately, in the very first email, threatened my job. I asked for some specific tips to do better next time so that I could learn - and they FIRED ME. For asking a question. Which they say to do all over their website... I got fired form a question website for asking a question... It's kind of funny and ironic... Oh well. I'm mainly writing this to let any prospective employees know that if you get questions rejected - if you want to keep your job, DO NOT ask for more information about how to do better because they will tell you that you require too much training and that they were wrong about the potential they saw in you... it's quite a cutting termination email, actually. In short - they are rude and they do not like questions. Worker beware.

    Rapid changes. However, this is understandable, since businesses often need to adjust quicky in order to survive.
